Moroccan footballer Imane Saoud, who plays for FC Basel, has decided to play for the Moroccan women’s national team. While many believed she would choose to wear the colors of France, she ultimately opted for her home country.

“The selection is always a great experience, whether with Morocco or France. In any case, I wear the same jersey. Both are my countries, and I am here to make countries proud, whether it is Morocco or France. No matter who calls me, I would give just as much, “she told Taja sport a few days ago. In the end, his choice fell on Morocco.

The country is preparing to host it and for the national team to win it. Because she qualifies for the 2023 World Cup in Australia, “said the 19-year-old midfielder.
